IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa busted out the bats, scoring five runs in a decisive eighth inning surge as the Hawkeyes topped Purdue 7-2. The win allowed Iowa to take two of three games in their opening series of Big Ten play.

Robert Neustrom's infield single in a 2-2 eight inning tie scored Corbin Woods to break the deadlock. The Hawks scored four more on a pair of two-RBI base hits from Ben Norman and Grant Judkins for a 7-2 edge which would hold up through the finish.

The Hawkeyes have won two straight after dropping their conference opener to the Boilermakers on Friday.
